Phil Robertson: AIDS is God's 'penalty' for 'immoral' gay sex

Duck Dynasty patriarch Phil Robertson claims AIDS is God's "penalty" for "immoral" gay sex.

During an appearance on the Family Research Council's (FRC) Washington Week to promote his new book UnPHILtered: The Way I See It, host and FRC President Tony Perkins praised Robertson for refusing to "conform" to political correctness that is "destroying the country."

"Yup, you're correct, it really is," Robertson replied.

"Is this coincidental that viewing all of the immoral conduct that America is now participating in you think it's a coincidence that all of these debilitating – and literally it can cause death – diseases follow that kind of conduct?" Roberson asked.

"God says one man, one woman and everyone says, 'Oh, that's old hat. That's that old Bible stuff.' But I'm thinking, well let's see now. A clean guy, a disease-free guy and disease-free woman they marry and they keep their sex between the two of them. They're not going to get chlamydia, and gonorrhea, and syphilis, and AIDS. It's safe."

"To me, either it's the weirdest coincidence ever that horrible diseases follow immoral conduct, or it's God saying there's a penalty for that kind of conduct. I'm leaning towards there's a penalty toward it."

"If you want to be safe from a lot of debilitating diseases, the route to go is one man and one woman as God intended," he added.

Of course, two men or two women could also decide to marry and remain monogamous and have a similar outcome.
